TOPIC: PREPARING FOR WHAT IS COMING - EARTHCHANGES
NOTE: I FOUND AN OLDER DREAM ABOUT THIS TOPIC FROM 2010 JUST YESTERDAY:
11-1-10 Dream-I was in an upstairs
room with a man who looked like Dr. Louis Turi. He was carrying a small pamphlet
similar in size to a Jehovah’s Witness pamphlet
On the front cover was a drawing of the earth with an image of another very large round space object coming nearby.
Inside the pamphlet was written the typical rhetoric for how to prepare for what is coming. It also had an Indian tale of the future.
The doctor realized the Indian tale
said something we hadn’t seen before---“even the turtle said it had to leave.”
We were so stunned that we hadn’t seen that statement before, we knew we had to tell others about what the turtle said.
The doctor left and almost
immediately, a young black couple came to the apartment who was aware of
preparing and when I told the woman we had realized that even the turtle was
afraid for it’s future, she didn’t want to hear about it.
So I grabbed her by the arm and
showed her the paragraph where it said that “even the turtle said it had to
leave.”, her eyes got wide with that realization.
We started talking about how the
people could possible evacuate if they lived in places like the Midwest, because
there was no way to get on a boat and travel between Lake Michigan and the Gulf
of Mexico or the Pacific Ocean.
It takes way too long to go through
the Panama Canal, up the East Coast to the Canal that goes across the north of
the United States to the Great Lakes.
No wonder the turtle was afraid.
11-21-12 - DREAM - I was in a house somewhere with the radio on. At the time, I was researching the topic of tin manufacturing. They announced on the news that Israel had been hit by 30,000 bombs.
Immediately I had to get in a bathtub of warm soapy water to decontaminate myself and then the house. Next to the bathtub was another bathtub, and all I had to move the water from one bathtub to the other one was a small sponge.
From the bathroom door, I could see an old grandmother sitting at the kitchen table, and my boyfriend - a middle aged man.
11-22-12 - DREAM - I actually dreamt this twice because the first time I was going too fast and was confusing myself.
I was looking at and printing out a booklet I had written about how to survive a tsunami.
Yikes! Are you kidding me?
GO TO A BUILDING OVER 3 THREE STORIES
GO TO HIGH GROUND
BE PREPARED AND LISTEN TO WARNING SIRENS AND GET AWAY FROM THE WATER AS FAST AS POSSIBLE
11-23-12 - DREAM - In the beginning of the dream, I was introduced to a man, who was dressed all in white, very dapper, with darker skin than myself, and a face that was seemingly oriental. He was to lecture in seminars on earthchanges and what was coming. I wasn't given his name, but I was to help him write a book on survivalism for what regular city people could do in the future because of the coming events that were possible.
The building I was working in was very large, with marble hallways, and many rooms, and there were people working there 24 hours a day in some of the offices, particularly night guards who were all female, not the same one every night, but in the same outer office with large windows that one could see outside from the first floor.
I didn't know the names of the night guards, female - wearing green uniforms, but occasionally I got to go into that office when no one was in there, and this particular night I went into the office, and looked in the center desk drawer and found some pink starred gift wrapping paper with little pieces of paper in them. One package had a pink background and the other package had a light blue background.
I didn't have time to read the notes that were wrapped up in the gift paper, so I grabbed the packages (there were two of them - one with little pieces of square paper, (the blue package) and the other one had odd-rounded shaped pieces of paper - (the pink package) like they were cut out with a sewing pinking shears - and each one of those pieces of paper had multiple numbers on them - each of the numbers was about 8 digits long it appeared. I wanted to read those numbers to find out what they were and try to figure out what they meant, so I took those two packages back to my own office which was on the same floor and stuck them in a corner of my own center desk drawer. My intention was to look at each of those pieces of paper and try to figure out what the numbers meant.
I managed to get those two packages of papers into the corner of my desk drawer but didn't have time to read the numbers and get the packages back into the night guards desk drawer before she returned.
I got up to walk down the hallways, and behind me I could hear two women talking, and assumed they were talking about me, when I heard the female night guard, say to the other women, "I don't know if I can trust her."
NOTE: I have a strong sense, that the little star shaped pieces of paper were the sightings of what stars were in the sky each night - stars are numbered.
Here is dawn sky on November 25th
Last night Jupiter was bright in the eastern sky, incredibly outstanding.
Here is what the sky will look like on November 28th coming up.
The other three visible planets – Mercury, Mars and Saturn – never drift far from the sun’s glare this month. Mercury passes into the November morning sky just after mid-month and will put on a good morning performance (for the Northern Hemisphere) in the final week of November and the first two weeks of December. Mars remains an evening object all month long, though this faint world appears low in the southwest sky after sunset and sets around nightfall. Saturn returns to visibility in the morning sky around the time of the Leonid meteor shower. If you’re diligent, you should be able to catch all five visible planets this month.
The planet Jupiter is always bright, but in late November and December 2012 it’s at its brightest. That’s because Earth will pass between Jupiter and the sun on December 2. Jupiter is the brightest object in this wonderful photo by EarthSky Facebook friend Carlos Colon Sr.
Whereas Jupiter shines in front of the constellation Taurus for the rest of 2012, Venus starts out November 2012 in the constellation Virgo the Maiden. These two planets continue to part ways in the starry sky. Jupiter stays rather close to the bright star Aldebaran throughout the month. But Venus meets up with Saturn near the border of the constellations Virgo and Libra on November 26, and then enters the constellation Libra the Scales a day or two thereafter.
November 2012 should be great for telescopic observations of Jupiter. With only a modest backyard telescope, you can easily see Jupiter’s four major moons – Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto
Photo is dated August 15, 2009
: November 2012 presents all five visible planets, although only Jupiter and Venus are clearly visible all month long. Mars appears but briefly after sunset, and the morning planets Mercury and Saturn won’t be readily visible in the predawn and dawn sky until the latter part of the month. Venus appears in the morning sky shortly before dawn. Venus and Jupiter rank as the third-brightest and fourth-brightest celestial bodies after the sun and moon. But as far as November 2012 is concerned, this is really Jupiter’s turn to shine because this brilliant world, which is far brighter than any star, beams in both the evening and morning sky!
Variable star designation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Variable_star_designation Variable stars are designated using a variation on the Bayer designation ... the number of variables piled up quickly, and variable star names soon fell into the ...
11-24-12 - DREAM - I was working with a man who was writing a book about preparing for earthchanges, and he was very serious about the book and HAD to get it done quickly. Each chapter of the book had a paragraph about the reason why it was being written. The title of each chapter was written in RED TEXT.
This man was not oriental, and not dressed in white. This man was Caucasian and we were in a very small space to do the writing. It was like we were perhaps in hiding or at least in a very controlled area already.
NOTE: I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY TIMES I'M EXPECTED TO WRITE ABOUT IT. EVIDENTLY PEOPLE AREN'T PAYING ATTENTION!
EVEN FEMA HAS POSTED THAT PEOPLE SHOULD PREPARE. TAKE AT A LOOK AT THE
PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T BOTHER TO GET
OUT OF THE WAY OF HURRICANE SANDY. I CAN'T SAY WE SHOULD BE SORRY FOR THEM. OF COURSE THEY WERE WIPED
OUT AND THEY DIDN'T EXPECT TO BE, BUT IN THIS TIME SPAN, WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO GET WITH THE PROGRAM
AND PREPARE FOR ANY EVENTUALITY.
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN EXACTLY! DON'T LIVE BY ANY OCEAN.
DON'T LIVE BY ANY NUCLEAR POWER PLANT
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ENOUGH FOOD, WATER, AND MEDICINE TO SEE YOU THROUGH SEVERAL WEEKS AT THE LEAST
MORE IF POSSIBLE. DETAILS WILL BE GIVEN BELOW
WE CANNOT POSSIBLY KNOW ALL THE DETAILS OF WHAT IS COMING, BUT THERE ARE PLENTY OF WARNINGS
TSUNAMI IS #1 - WAR IS #2 AND I MEAN WWIII - ASTEROIDS, TORNADOES, HURRICANES, FLOODS, THE COMETS - MORE AND MORE VOLCANOES BLOWING THEIR TOPS
MORE AND MORE LARGE EARTHQUAKES - ESPECIALLY IN PLACES THAT NEVER HAD THEM BEFORE
MORE AND MORE FIRES IN HOT WEATHER ESPECIALLY IN PLACES THAT HAVE NEVER HAD THEM BEFORE
MORE AND MORE ILLNESS FROM BAD FOODS OF MANY TYPES -
MORE AND MORE ILLNESS FROM VACCINES THAT WE SHOULDN'T BE USING
MORE AND MORE ILLNESS FROM CHEMTRAILS WHICH ARE NOT RELENTING
MORE AND MORE WEATHER ANOMALIES - BOTH HOT AND COLD - AND UNBELIEVABLE POURING RAINS AND HIGH WINDS
MUCH OF THAT WEATHER IS BROUGHT TO US BY THE COMETARY INSURGENCY, BUT ALSO BY THE SUN WHICH REACTS
TO ALL THAT AS WELL.
THEN WE CAN LOOK FORWARD TO FAMINE AND STARVATION IN MANY COUNTRIES, ESPECIALLY IN THE CENTRAL STATES
WHERE THE SUN IS ALREADY FRYING THE FIELDS AND RUINED THE CORN CROP IN 2012
THERE ARE ALSO CONTAMINATED RICE FIELDS IN JAPAN, AND FISHING GROUNDS - ALL LACED WITH NUCLEAR FALLOUT
THAT GOES FOR ANY ANIMAL FOODS RAISED IN THOSE AREAS AS WELL, AND IN HAWAII, AND CALIFORNIA
NUCLEAR FALLOUT DOESN'T STOP AT COUNTRY OR STATE BORDERS.
WE NEED TO PREPARE FOR ALL THAT! THAT IS WHAT IS COMING! AND THERE IS NO ESCAPE - EVERYONE WILL BE HIT
BY AT LEAST ONE OF THOSE THINGS IF YOU DON'T PREPARE IN ADVANCE.
THERE ARE MULTIPLE COMETS AND ASTEROIDS COMING - PLANET X IS ALREADY HERE AND IT IS SURROUNDED BY ASTEROIDS
THAT ARE LIKELY TO COME THIS WAY AT SOME POINT.
COMET 2012 S-1 IS ON THE WAY AND WILL MESS WITH MARS FIRST, VENUS, MERCURY AND THEN US
ASTEROID 2012 DA-14 IS ALSO ON THE WAY - NASA HAS STOPPED TALKING ABOUT IT AND WE DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS.
I WILL GIVE LINKS TO EVERYTHING WE HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THAT I HAVE ALREADY WRITTEN ABOUT.
MY MAIN SURVIVAL PREPAREDNESS PAGE IS HERE: http://www.greatdreams.com/survival.htm
THAT SAID, HERE COME SOME DETAILS:
BASIC LIST OF
Some people are saying we should prepare for at least 7 days, but the way things go after a hurricane, tornado, floods, loss of electricity and the fact that these disasters will continue and perhaps even get worse in coming years according to trends, one week is not enough. Some have said 7 years, but that seems too long so do what you can. Be sure to use the older stocked goods first and replace them with new. Otherwise you will end up with all old food you might not even want to eat. Always check canned tomatoes for spoilage, as even in the can they can spoil. Most other foods last a long time.
1. Water stored to last at least 7 days, at one gallon per
day per person. (If you buy cases of l/2 litres - you can buy enough to
last a couple of months) Recently, people
are saying that water in plastic is toxic, so
store water in glass if possible.
Homeland Security recommends 7 days for survival, but in recent years, some people don't have electricity or heat for up to 3 weeks, so to be really safe - plan for at least 3 weeks.
2. A good canteen and basins to catch rainwater. Also have a good supply of water purification tablets or bleach, or plan to boil your water. The surest way to purify water is to boil it for 15 to 20 minutes.
Note: I have received arguments that boiling for longer than 5 minutes will just waste good water, but 15 minutes is safer to kill Cryptospiridium.
3. Food, per person, for one year: (Divide by 12 for 1 month)
Wheat - 300 lbs.
Rice - 100 lbs.
Beans, Peas, Lentils, 50 lbs. each
Honey or Sugar - 60 lbs.
Salt - 3 lbs. (Get 6 lbs to be sure) (See below)
Cayenne Pepper - 1 large can
Dried Milk - 80 lbs.
Peanut Butter - 50 lbs.
Canned food, or dried (ready to mix) food
Oatmeal - 50 lbs.
Alfalfa Seeds - 10 lbs.
Sprouts (see below)
Canned Sardines, tuna, salmon
If you have a baby, include formula and baby food. If you have pets, you will want food for them as well. Store food needs in waterproof containers, capable of also protecting against insects and mice. Use Steel garbage cans or plastic 5 gallon buckets. The vacuum sealed method is also very good. If you are storing nuts or oatmeal, they smell and taste bad after a while, so they will need to be rotated. For all storing of food, the rule is: use up the old and replace with the new.
Also, buy mice and rat traps and don't forget to use them.
NOTE; I recommend freezing nuts for storage.
4. Manual grain grinder
5. Medicines - Assemble a standard first aid kit, with a comprehensive first aid book. Also include things for headache, upset stomach, congestion, colds, such as Pepto Bismol, aspirin, Tylenol, Excedrin, disinfectants, prescription medicines; and anything else you use regularly. Include vitamins, apple cider vinegar, honey, garlic, sage tea for colds, mint tea, golden seal, brandy (good as medicine), herbal tinctures, hops, catnip (which helps you sleep), herbs for cooking, including dried garlic and onions, cayenne pepper, cumin, basil, and coriander and salt. After you've been eating rice and beans for a few days, they'll need lots of help to make them taste good. Add to this list things such as Colloid Silver, and perhaps even your own Colloid Silver maker. It isn't expensive to make your own Colloid Silver. Also don't forget sunscreen - nobody is safe in the sun long-term anymore.
Also learn about herbal medicines and if you have space, grow some of your own - most are perennials and once you get the plant growing, its yours for as long as you take care of it.
See: http://www.earthmountainview.com for suggestions on herbs and growing your own food.
6. Toothbrushes, baking soda or salt to brush with, a good supply of dental floss (which can be used for other things as well) and another items you need for good tooth care. Stay away from toothpaste that has fluoride in it or you will kill your brain over time.
7. Extra eye glasses
8. For a camp kitchen you need: camp stove with good supply of fuel (in wooded areas, all you need are rocks and a flat tin or grill), pots and pans, plates and bowls (unbreakable) (you can use Army surplus camp kits) cooking utensils, knife, forks, spoon, spatula, biodegradable dish soap, towels, bucket to carry water, dish pan, matches dipped in wax and stored in waterproof containers.
9. A good tent, sleeping bag for each person, extra blankets, sleeping pads, and ground cloth - and another waterproof tarp to cover your camp gear.
10. Clothing - Have clothing for all weather. Include a good warm coat and sweaters, hat for rain or shine, rain gear, a good pair of hiking boots that will take years to wear out, warm winter underwear, wool socks, summer socks (don't wear socks with holes in them as they cause blisters) (learn to darn socks) work gloves, hats, and whatever else you need for warmth and protection.
11. Hunting equipment. Hunting might be necessary for survival in some situations. Be prepared both with equipment and knowledge of how to use the equipment. First choice of a gun is a .22 caliber rifle. You can kill anything up to a deer with it. Purchase 500 rounds of .22 hollow point bullets. If you are not a good marksman, then get a 30-30 or 30-06 and at least 200 shells. A shotgun comes in handy for shooting things flying or running. The bow and arrow is still one of the best weapons. You will have to practice, and of course, you can never run out of shells. If you want to be unseen and unheard by unfriendly people, this would be a good idea. Also, take a compass with you.
12. Fishing equipment. - Get basic equipment. Include assorted sized hooks, fish lines, sinkers, etc. Fishing takes time, but if you are moving toward long-term survival, time is something you may have plenty of.
13. Wood stove. Get one with a secondary burn chamber. It uses less wood and creates less pollution. Get one with a flat top for cooking on.
14. Chain saw, extra gas and oil, spark plugs, chain, etc.
15. Bow saw and a tool to set the teeth with, extra blades.
16. Skill saw (for when you have electricity)
17. Axe, hatchet, files.
18. Spitting maul
19. Flashlights with extra batteries and bulbs; candles; propane, kerosene, or Coleman lantern with plenty of fuel, and extra wicks and mantles.
20. A good pocket knife and a sharpening stone.
21. Hammers, assorted nails, assorted screws, wrench set, pliers, wire cutters, screw drivers, pipe wrench, 200 feet of 1/4 inch nylon rope, duct tape.
22. Shovels, spades, hoes, and rakes with strong teeth
23. Charging system - wind, water, or solar - to pump water and provide electricity
24. Backpack - Waterproof. If you are forced to relocate, it may be all that goes with you.
26. Up-to-date maps of the area you want to live in. This will show you land and water away from human habitation.
27. A 4 wheel drive vehicle with all the proper tools for maintaining it. Extra parts.
28. Tire chains for snow.
29. Radio. Have more than one. electrical and battery operated. Get a crank operated one. (See C. Crane company for this information) You'll want to know what's going on in the outside world.
30. Soap for laundry and bathing. Also learn how to make your own and have those supplies handy.
31. Natural insect repellent.
32. A mirror. You'll want to see yourself, but you can use it for signaling as well.
33. Extra toilet paper. Also keep old newspapers and telephone directories for emergencies. (Hint: if you need to use old newspaper, crinkle it up and straighten it out several times first -- it's much softer!)
34. Female needs - (Use cloth pads you can wash)
35. Baby diapers. (Use cloth you can wash) Older kids can go bare bottom when necessary. Indians used moss and grass when necessary.
36. A basic sewing kit (needles and threads)
37. Safety pins
38. Swiss Army knife
39. Bobby pins (you can work wonder with these)
40. Pencils and paper, maybe even a notebook for a diary.
41. Musical instruments (harmonica, flute, guitar) to lift the spirit
42. Crazy glue
43. Patch kit
In the survival sense, think warm clothing, think fleece.
Those fleece throws (the single blankets) are great gifts, roll up nice and compact and are very useful as blankets, capes, padding for sleeping on the ground, tablecloths or even hung up on a leanto to break the wind.
By the time everyone adds their ideas to your list we will all need a U-haul on the back of that 4 wheel drive vehicle. Hey not a bad idea to learn how to build your own trailer, all you need is a spare axle, couple of wheels, a hitch and some wood. Peace - Marguerite
44. Lots of good books to read.
45. .22 ammunition - amount stored should be 5000 rounds, not 500. It is small, inexpensive, and can be used as barter material if need be.
46. .30-30/.30-06 - other calibers to seriously consider are the .308, .270, .243, .223, and 7.62x39.
Many people, myself included can't handle the recoil of a .30-06 (and I don't like .30-30). There are more rifles chambered in the calibers I mentioned than I can list, and all are good. It all depends on what you can afford. The amount of ammo one should store should be a minimum 1000 rounds, not 200.
47. A sturdy, fixed blade hunting knife should always be include. You can find these from Buck, Gerber, SOG, Camillus, Uncle Henry, and many others. I prefer the Camillus Pilot/Survival or Marine Combat knives. These have been made under contract for the US military for about four decades and have stood the test of time. They are also inexpensive ($25 and $35 respectively) so if one is lost or happens to break, you don't get as upset as you would should your Gerber BMF ($240) bite the dust.
48. Many people, myself included, have not been able to master the use of a sharpening stone. But with the use of a sharpening kit, such as those by Lansky, we can bring up a very sharp edge on our knives. Great for use on kitchen cutlery as well.
49. A pocket tool, such as those by Leatherman, Gerber, SOG, et al, are much more versatile than the Swiss Army Knife and their prices are comparable to the more expensive Swiss Army Knives. In the meantime, I will hang on to my SAK until I can afford a Leatherman Super Tool. (I still have a house to run.)
50. 200' to 500' of 550# test Paracord is a great addition to your supplies, especially when the 1/4" nylon cord/rope is too thick or not the right tool for the job.
51. Boiling water may be effective, but it is not the best way to purify water. Boiling removes the oxygen content and causes it to be flat. For EMERGENCY purposes only one can use un-scented household bleach to purify water, but you should use only 1/2 teaspoon per 5 gallons of water (1 tsp should the water be cloudy). The best method is to use HTH dry chlorine (65%), which can be purchased in bulk at stores like WalMart, Target, KMart, etc. (Also a great barter item.) The amount to use is 1/4 teaspoon (0.03 ounce) per 300 gallons for a 0.5 ppm of chlorine.
Try a solar water distiller: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=%22Solar+distiller%22&btnG=Search
52. One can also get a complete cookset...cookpots, frying pan, coffee pot, plates, and cups...of good or better quality in the outdoor department of WalMart, Kmart, Target, etc., or a good outdoor supply store that sells camping equipment.
53. One should have two or three pairs of good hiking boots (U.S. issue combat boots are still the best and only cost $60-$80 mail order) in their closet and one dozen pair bootlaces per pair of boots (laces also come in handy for short term temporary uses, too). Should the long-term effect be much longer than anticipated, then the extra boots will be needed. Also a couple pair of good cross-trainers or running shoes would be advisable.
54.You should always have a handful of disposable lighters in addition to matches. They come in quite handy and you don't have to be a smoker to keep them on hand. They are inexpensive and take up very little room.
55. When we packed our food we used food-grade diatomaceous
earth for the grains. All grain already has the eggs of insects in it -
it's just the natural way. When they hatch out the diatomaceous earth
either smothers them because the particles are so tiny or if the larvae
is bigger or soft-skinned it dries them up.
An added step would be to re-open and add a small piece of dry ice to the top. (I like to put it on a piece of broken pottery to keep it from "burning" the grain.) Let the lid rest on top while the dry ice sublimates into gaseous carbon dioxide and displaces bug-breathable air. Then seal tightly.
ALSO: ..I suggest sealing your bags, boxes etc. to keep from getting damp, then freezing them for 3 days..it kills the eggs. I have done this with everything I buy..it works. I have used rice, flour, etc. that is months old (re-stocking as I use). I'm sure it will work for animal feed as well.
You can also drop a couple of Bay leaves in since most bugs hate. Bay leaves are good to use in almost any food storage situation
Another good storage trick for grains and legumes is to use oxygen absorber packs that can be purchased wherever food storage supplies are sold. No oxygen = no living things, and no oxidation of the contents or the container.
To avoid 6 legged critters, vacuum seal your food
(see Tilia Foodsaver) and store in 5 gallon plastic buckets with the
snap on lids. Or, store food directly in the 5 gallon buckets and pay to
have the buckets nitrogen injected. Costs a couple of bucks a bucket.
Either of these methods will kill existing critters and prevent future
I have used boric acid effectively for years to
keep away roaches, along with Roach Prufe. The last place I was in had
ants before I brought in food. One place I had and didn't prepare very
many meals, had neither roaches nor ants, but I brought in weevils from
the store, and they ate everything resembling a carbohydrate.
Also get extra tubes & stuff to fix them with. Also pick up a
few "fake" furs at the used clothing stores to use for covering. Or get
real fur, but probably will cost more. You can get wool blankets at the
Am Vets & Goodwill stores.
These days, anything you can get that is organic is
healthier than anything you buy in a grocery store. Buying at local farm
markets is preferable. Always ask if the food is organic before buying.
59 - SALT:
61. CONTAINERS - You can get 5 gal. sturdy plastic containers at the bakery shops as well as smaller sizes. Fill EACH one with things such as Medical supplies, clothing, food, ammo, survival books, reading books, Classic books, tools, etc....and don't forget all the family pictures. There is a process where you can put a picture on a piece of metal & it will last for hundreds of years.
62 - more ideas from a reader:
water: chlorine treatments do not kill
best way to rid water of these is boiling. Some say 5 minutes, but
bringing water to a rolling boil should be enough to kill any organisms
in it. Better to live on water with "less oxygen" (which can be re-added
by shaking a half-full jug of water for a few minutes) than suffer the
effects of an infection.
Hello, my name is Brett, from Rochester, Michigan. Great page love everything I read so far. I would like to add some tips for your readers...
Electrical and silver bearing solder and a good awl paired with any flame is great for repairs on watches, eye glasses, hunting and fishing gear, obviously electronics. Also good for making fishing weights and lures themselves (poured over a bare hook/bobby pin & shaped by tool or stone, polished with blue jeans or wool)
9 volt batterys kept in individual waterproof bags, a dozen at least.
Accompanied by (not stored together) steel wool will light fires on the
wettest of days. Also a few sterno petroleum jelly fuel cans are great
for fire starting, not the whole can at once but just a 1/2 tsp will
light a good fire in wind and rain.
Also safety gear, such as shin, knee, elbow pads and a good
rafting/skateboard/bike helmet is great for doing anything dangerous or
rugged (forest gathering, hunting, exploring) safety glasses are cheap
$3- or less per pair. And save your most precious of senses. Life
jackets are good knee savers when working/planting near the ground. Good
for makeshift Pillows and seat cushions. Bottle caps (metal) are great
tools and have 100s of useful uses from fishing lures to de-scaling
fish, cleaning, digging, place in chicken areas like lots of little
bowls and will collect rain/dew for birds. Think bowl shaped bobby pins.
THE LATEST READER SUGGESTIONS WERE:
A COMPLETE SEWING KIT WITH MANY TYPES OF NEEDLES, THREAD AND WIRE YOU CAN SEW WITH.
SEVERAL ROLLS OF DUCT TAPE, ELECTRICAL TAPE, WRAPPING TAPE
Magnifying glass - for starting fires. Works quick as long as tinder is small (crunched up leaves, shaved wood. etc.) I can have a fire going in 30-45 seconds on a bright day. Will save matches. It could also serve as help if someone would need stitched up from an accident, splinters, etc.
You mention tarps which is great. I also have a roll of clear plastic from Lowes (any building supply) that is 24" x 100' and when unfolded is 12' wide. Would be good for cutting into sections for rain water catching plus could provide (cur correctly) rain proof ponchos.
The most important thing to sustain life is water. A Berkey water filter shhould be added to your supplies. Also a couple of the inexpensive UV light purifiers. Stocking up on the 5 gallon water storage containers that can be moved much easier than a barrel.
NOTE: A brand new cabinet for water storage is near the top of the page at http://www.greatdreams.com/survival.htm You can build it easily yourself.
Bathtub water bladder for an emergency also.
NOTE: What surprised me when I looked up magnifying glass on my own website, I found a spirit message that said: "There will be no sun". yikes!
Watch for this event as well:
